We just got off the phone with a very upset American Steak & Eggs employee who confirmed the diner’s forced closure until August 6. They said it was because the teams playing in the USA Basketball International Challenge are training in Jing’an Stadium, which houses the restaurant. “There’s lots of security outside right now,” she said. “It’s really bad.” She said Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, also in the building, was also forced to close. This is all quite strange to us — wouldn’t the members of Team USA, who we hear are staying at the Portman Ritz-Carlton next door, enjoy some American steak and eggs?
